Color Throwdown 176

Hi everyone! It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge...presented this week by the talented Joan!

My card was ridiculously simple because the DP did all the work!  I thought this pattern from the Beach Cottage pad by Creative Imaginations was perfect for these colors!  A quick Verve sentiment from the Sweet Treats set, a bit of May Arts jute twine and a little Maya Road tag finished it off.  The border is a Martha Stewart punch called Vintage Floral.

Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, hop on over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD176 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week.
